Daily Beast: The “highly transmissible” Omicron variant of coronavirus ripping through South Africa is putting disproportionately large numbers of children under 5 years old in hospitals, a top South African government medical adviser said Friday.

The alarming development raises the prospect of a new global battle cycle against the virus, given that the new variant has already spread to dozens of countries. The South African scientists also said the new variant was spreading much quicker than any previous wave of the coronavirus.

In a worrying virtual press conference, government adviser Waasila Jassat, speaking about the worst-affected area of Gauteng province (which includes the city of Johannesburg), said: “It’s clear in Gauteng, the week-on-week increase we’re seeing in cases and admissions is higher than we’ve seen it before. We’ve seen quite a sharp increase [in hospital admissions] across all age groups but particularly in the under 5s.”

She added: “The incidence in those under 5 is now second highest, second only to those over 60. The trend that we’re seeing now, that is different to what we’ve seen before, is a particular increase in hospital admissions in children under 5 years.

She said, for example, that in the city of Tshwane Metro, more than 100 children under the age of 5 were admitted to hospitals with COVID in the first two weeks of the new fourth wave (Nov. 14 to 27). In the first two weeks of the country’s third wave, in May of this year, fewer than 20 children were admitted to hospitals.

“We’ve always seen children not being very heavily affected by the COVID epidemic in the past, not having many admissions. In the third wave, we saw more admissions in young children under 5 and in teenagers, 15-19, and now, at the start of this fourth wave, we have seen quite a sharp increase across all age groups, but particularly in the under 5s.”

Jassat produced graphs that clearly showed how children under 5 years old are now being hospitalized at an alarming rate.

  1. The upcoming war you refer to will not be started by Russia or China. The trigger for it will be what it always is, an Israeli false-flag attack on the USA that will be blamed on some nation that has nothing whatsoever to do with it. Our Zionist-controlled MSM will start beating the war drums and off we will go into some unwinnable conflict that will be the end of the USA as we know it.

  2. One of the early assessments of covid, was that it is not affecting children. Very rare for a pandemic.

    The followup to that assessment was, if a variant does affect children, peoples attitude will change.

    I need to hear it from hospitals in my region to act upon the report. But if they come,…then the decision must be based upon percentages of under 13 years of age affected. Do not mess around. Strong intell, is a factor in survival of any species in any situation.
